Description

She's the daughter of Irish immigrants, bright and independent, and fiery as her flame-red hair. But for seventeen-year-old Alison Gallagher, the Civil War has brought nothing but turmoil. After losing two stepbrothers, her older brother and her lover are both missing in action-and to make matters worse, her father has been targeted as a deserting traitor. Now her biggest goal in life is to locate her loved ones and clear her father's name. But she won't be able to do that sitting around at the Indiana family farm. Instead she makes the life-changing decision to join the US Army, disguising herself as a man and walking to Cincinnati, Ohio, so she can fit in among their ranks. Tall, proud, and determined, Aly has no trouble taking on the appearance of an effective soldier. But when tragedy, loss, and the horrors of war take their toll, will she have what it takes to "man up" and get the job done? "Lady in Blue" is a compelling tale of family, friendship, and unstoppable determination, set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Civil War.show more
